Impacts of High Variable Renewable Energy Futures on Wholesale Electricity Prices, and on Electric-Sector Decision Making

May 23, 2018 -- Lawrence Berkeley Lab partnered with LCG Consulting to develop a large number of variable renewable energy (VRE) scenarios to derive future generator portfolios and hourly price and emissions series. The main objective of this exercise is to offer policymakers, utilities and grid authorities a long-range view of how current choices could impact their future ability to cope with changes in the electric sector.

What can ERCOT expect in 2017? Two new studies published


LCG, February 27, 2017--Growth in ERCOT is an active area of research and debate for all Texas stakeholders. The region is undergoing unprecedented wind and solar development, billions of dollars in transmission upgrades, and the proposed integration with Lubbock Power & Light.

LCG Consulting has published two reports using its premiere grid modeling software, UPLAN, to model ERCOT in 2017 with 5-minute dispatch:

ERCOT 2017 Outlook Report. Outlines future operation of the ERCOT nodal market, including Locational Marginal Prices (LMPs), load zone prices, hub prices and expected congestion.

ERCOT Q1 Resource Adequacy Report. Investigates the operational implications of strained network conditions in the ERCOT market.

These two reports oversee generation mix, discuss whether prices will remain relatively low compared to past years, how different zones compare, and what kind of congestion and curtailment stakeholders can expect and where it can be expected.

For more in depth analysis, LCG can provide tailored datasets, such as individualized generator performance, hourly prices, and much more.

LCG performed these studies using 5-minute dispatch and the industry’s most sophisticated and long-standing electricity model, the UPLAN Network Power Model. LCG has been modeling energy systems for more than 30 years and continuously sustains the most up-to-date information on every detail of the Texas grid, from minor and major transmission upgrades to gas prices and weather patterns.
